This place is good for a quick visit any day. I had lunch, the Lamd shanks to be particular. It was on my table within 20 minutes approx. Not the best looking place but don't let that fool or put you off. Go for it!

Great steak in a really cool atmosphere. Rustic furnishings set the place off and the fillet steak was delicious.. Cane toad racing looked hilarious but make sure you book a ticket as they sell out when busy. Thanks for a great night team!🤙
